Amiibo Support for Hyrule Warriors

We already knew that Nintendo's Warriors-themed Zelda game would have some kind of Amiibo support, but today we learned that that will be a new item for Link: the Hyrule Spinner -- a gear like item featured in Twilight Princess, the spinner is a spinning-top that you can use to plow through enemies.

Hyrule Warriors will support other Amiibo figurines as well, awarding you with materials, weapons, or rupees when you connect them to your system. If the figurine works in Super Smash Bros., then it'll also give you rewards in Hyrule Warriors.
